Mardi Gras Tablescape


Hi everyone!

I know I am early this week with showing my tablescape. But, today is Fat Tuesday and so it should go up today! LOL

I have to tell you ahead of time, all the doodads that make this table Mardi Gras-ish came from the Dollar Stores. My linens and stemware were all thrift finds.

Mardi Gras tablescape 001I started with the 3 Mardi Gras colors. A green tablecloth, 2 purple placemats and gold topper square (okay…Shhhhh….don’t tell anyone but, the gold cloth is just a pillow sham).

Mardi Gras tablescape 002I love these old fringed tablecloths. This one fits over my table perfectly

Mardi Gras tablescape 003So, here is my Mardi Gras Tablescape!

Mardi Gras tablescape 004Mardi Gras tablescape 005Mardi Gras tablescape 006I made sure to have a green stem, purple stem and a gold stem glasses.

TMardi Gras tablescape 007To add the 3 colors in a fun way, I picked up these acrylic pedestal dishes. Just added a couple of Foil paper horns, some beads, foil mask and a little gift bag.

Mardi Gras tablescape 008I did not have an appropriate serving platter to put the King Cake on so, I wrapped a cookie sheet in purple foil gift wrap.

Mardi Gras tablescape 009Mardi Gras tablescape 010Mardi Gras tablescape 011 Mardi Gras tablescape 013I had picked up a set of three of these ceramic metallic glazed masks awhile ago at a thrift store for $1.00 . The pretty cut glass sorbet glasses were also thrift finds from years ago. They have a slight hint of purple to the glass.

Mardi Gras tablescape 014Bright and fun Mardi Gras paper plates are just the perfect touch for making a tablescape like this. I also used the matching paper napkins. The green plates underneath are from the Dollar Tree.

Mardi Gras tablescape 015 The feathered masks were a must. Also from the Dollar Tree.

Mardi Gras tablescape 016I am so loving these new gold filigree glasses! I found them a couple of weeks ago at a thrift store. They were .95 cents each.

Mardi Gras tablescape 017 A King Cake is a must!

Mardi Gras tablescape 018Around here, instead of saying “Fat Tuesday” we call it Paczki Day! That is pronounced “punch-key”. We live in a pretty good size Polish area and this is a Polish dessert for Fat Tuesday. Let me tell you, it doesn’t matter if you are Polish, Catholic or any other religion or ethnic background, EVERYBODY here eats Paczki on Fat Tuesday! We wait all year for Paczki Day! Now, you can buy these at local grocery stores on Fat Tuesday but, if you want the best go to a local bakery that has been in business forever around here. Yes, you generally have to call days ahead and order yours and then stand in line to get them but, they are worth the wait!! Troy and the princess went early today to pick up our order. The line wasn’t too bad, only 35 people ahead of them. So, these babies are FRESH!! I wouldn’t let anyone eat them until I got my pictures!! LOL

  1. Your table is starting the party without you. I have been watching the tv morning shows showing all the yummy foods associated with Mardi Gras and I do not think I have ever been to a M.G. party.
    I just realized that what I am posting Thursday has all the proper colors.

    Have a delicious time.

  9. Diann this is great! I am so unfamiliar with Mardi Gras having grown up and lived in SC all my life but I am just loving seeing all of the pretty tablescapes for this! I want to do one so bad but would feel kinda odd and bogus not knowing much about it. I do know Fat Tuesday if for celebrating and going off the wagon so to speak! Right? LOL! I love all the colors you used here, especially the deep purples and golds. I cannot believe you found most of this at the Dollor tree. I bet ours don't have this, I will have to check. Your treats looks sooo delicious too! YUM!

  24. What a fabulous Mardi Gras table Diann. Everything looks like fun in the making! I can't believe you got those pretty goblets at such a great price! The bright paper plates add so much to the festive look, and those makes from the $ Store look like real N.O. masks! That polish pastry is making me soooo hungry. It looks like it would be delicious. Do the bakeries only sell it on Fat Tues.? Great job on your table. laurie

You have a really good eye for design...all those elements could easily have ended up looking like a big hot mess....but you made it work really well....good use of your colors...proportion is spot on...nicely done! Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
